Unit Development Application

Client: Dunn & Moran Landscape Architects
Location: New Farm, Brisbane

Scope: A protected pine-tree onsite of a proposed unit development meant council approval was going to be tough unless the client could show the impact the development would have on the tree.

Traditional Challenges: 

  • Access was difficult due to the sloping site on the edge of the Brisbane River
  • Exact measurements of the tree would be difficult due to factors such as wind, shape and height of the tree
  • The planners required a significant amount of technical drawings and reports to allow the approval to proceed

Our Solution? 

Using our 3D Laser Scanner we could easily identify the exact parts of the tree which needed to be trimmed to comply with council regulations.

By creating a 3D Point Cloud Model we could insert  the developer’s building model into the as-built environment to visualise its position against the tree.

This got the development application over the line, as the client was able to provide the necessary drawings and reports to prove the tree would be sustained if the project went ahead.
